Resume



The most rewarding aspect of paper crafting is the realization that I am leaving a legacy for future generations.  In this journey, it is my desire to inspire and teach those who wish to learn this beautiful art form.  I have been involved in the wonderful world of paper crafting since February, 2008.  I believe that this is a personal journey for each of us and that all roads are unique and special.  I welcome all contributing artist, design team, guest design team and publishing opportunities.


My style has been described as detailed, elegant and multifaceted.  I enjoy all forms of paper crafting and floral design.  Many of my projects are adorned with floral accents and touches of the unique.  I easily adapt to the style of the products I am using.  I use a variety of techniques such as digital scrapbooking, floral design, painting, sewing and stamping to create one of a kind projects.  I enjoy creating altered projects, cards and scrapbook layouts.  Attention to detail is my greatest strength.  I pay close attention to my design and the elements I select for each project.  I like to take the reader on a visual journey when they view my designs.
